When hubs asked me where to have dinner for my birthday, the first place came to mind is TJ Haus. I've always loved the ambiance and service here. It is so ethereal, serene and romantic with beautiful, rustic and vintage decors.

Salmon pasta RM22 and red snapper with rice RM29
Food was yummylicious and tasted just right although my salmon was a little overcooked. Other than that, everything was perfect.

Stairway to heaven
Our bill came up to RM67.10 inclusive of iced teh tarik, hot herbal tea and 10% service charge. It may be a little over the top but it is worthy to me. In fact, it is comparable to other western restaurants which are way more expensive. Both ambiance and service here are also way better than the rest!

MPOV: O'Viet Vietnamese Cuisine

As mentioned previously, we had an untoward incident at Shogun which we made us changed our mind and not to have dinner there. After scouting around, we decided to try O'Viet since we haven't had Vietnamese in a while... missed Pho Hoa though.

Liked the ambiance with cool decors:

We ordered steamed wrapped rolls (RM9.90), special seafood noodle (RM16.90), seafood noodle soup (RM15.90), Vietnamese cendol (RM8.90) and ginger lemon tea (RM6.90). Overall, it was fulfilling, tasty and portion is huge! Other than that, it's really sweet and nothing out of the ordinary. Honestly, the food is sweet. After that, we were really thirsty so we now know the caused of the sweetness. Hubs was disappointed with the cendol as he expected something uniquely Vietnamese but it turned out otherwise... just the usual cendol, just watery that's all.

Total bill was RM64.35 inclusive of 10% service charge. Definitely over the top and not as tantalising as Pho Hoa. Perhaps we ordered the wrong dishes but then it'll still be sweet overall so it doesn't suit our tastebud. Thankfully service was good and the staff was efficient, unlike the ones at Shogun who preferred chatting among themselves.

Rating: 3/5 more for the ambiance and staff

MPOV: A.S. Allen Hair Salon

I recently had a hair cut at my dear old friends' hair salon. I've been frequenting their salon since I was in secondary school and their shop was in SS15 Subang Jaya then! After they had shifted to Summit Mall, I've tried various hair salons but with disappointing results. Honestly, no hairdresser can style and tame my hair!

I have very fine and frizzy hair. I always tie it up as it is unmanageable and stubborn LOL! Well, most hairdressers will cut according to their knowledge of layering by their book and my hair will ended up looking more frizzy.

Unlike Allen and Sally. They know how to 'read' my hair curls, yes I do have natural curly ends, and layered it skillfully. In the end, I have a perfect, lightweight, layered haircut! I only cut my hair twice a year so... honestly, it may cost me, actually hubs, RM64 with wash and blow but it's totally worth every penny! Others may be cheaper but the quality and end result sucks so you do the maths lah...

Comparison here... I seldom selfie so couldn't find a better photo to compare:
Before: frilly, unkempt, unmanageable hair
After: manageable, easily curled hair

My 42nd Birthday

A reminiscence of my birthday this year. Nothing grand but memorable in my books albeit a few untoward incidents.

Firstly, we had an unexpected day trip back to hometown to check on FIL. He's still weak but looking pink of health now. Spent some quality time with Angels too and I was so happy when they actually bought a cake to celebrate my birthday, 3 days early! I was so touched!
The next day, met up with my BFF, Joyce, and she gave me a chic envelope purse from Dorothy Perkins! It blew my mind off! Thanks so much babe!
On the eve, we had dinner at O' Viet. We actually wanted Shogun as I love Japanese food but the staff misinformed us and were kinda lackadaisical, chatting instead of serving hence we went off to look for other options. Will update our experience here in another post.
Upon switching on my notebook and mobile, Google greeted me... it brightened my day!
Unintentionally, we had a little western dinner on my birthday at TJ Haus. I've always loved the ambiance here and both the service and food are good. Will share that in another post ^.^
Although there were no big celebrations nor huge shenanigans, I totally had a wonderful time with sweet memories to boot with my loved ones. Not forgetting all those beautiful birthday wishes from Facebook to Google to Skype to Whatsapp to WeChat and even Instagram!!! Wow! Thanks to social media, we are all connected either near or far... so blessed to have them as my friends! Even sis Alvina, bros Ryan and Chris had something for me... an angpow from Alvina, a professional studio photoshoot voucher from Ryan and my domain name renewal from Chris ^.^

The only setback, I had diarrhoea and gastric after that... was on medical leave the next day sigh!
Anyhow, I am so so so blessed and thankful... a year older, hopefully wiser... amen!
